It is always a good idea to prepare any “pre-prepared” canvas with a good Gesso before you start a painting. This new range of Free Flow Gessos has a particularly easy to spread fluid consistency. The surface is gritty when the Gesso dries and for a smoother finish it can be sandpapered but users might like to consider the gritty tooth unmodified. It is good for mixed media and easier to apply than less fluid Gessos.
Free Flow Gesso is a ground preparation which can be used for different grades and consistencies of acrylic overpainting and can also be used for oil painting.
The colours now available in the Free Flow Gesso are:
Unbleached Titanium, Raw Sienna, Light Red Ochre, Indian Red Oxide, Carbon Black
